But first, a digression. Video game adaptations don't have the best reputation. Of course, that is like saying "water is wet". Video game adaptations tend to attract directors like Uwe Boll and actors looking to pay for a new pool. Video game adaptations tend to be regarded as highly as their counter in the video game world, the movie tie-in. There are outliers, of course, like any generalization. It's not all House of the Dead or Super Mario Bros. Or Assassin's Creed. Oh, Assassin's Creed.
